The MQ-9 "Reaper" can cruise airborne at about 250 miles per hour and between 15,000 and 20,000 feet. It has the ability to fly for up to 15 hours with a full-motion video that can be streamed back to a tactical operations center or command and control center for first-response missions. The aircraft also is capable of acquiring targets and tracking them for long periods of time from high altitudes with its camera system.
